Hmmm;

 I lucked out last Sunday , the eighth . How ? Do you remember the 1972 GMC stepside SWB pickup by ERTL/AMT ? Well I saw one at a friends store .I started to ask him about it and he took it off the shelf saying " I know it's been started , but it's all there " it 's yours ."

 When I asked him the price he told me no price , he hadn't been able to get to the Hospital last Feb to visit becaues of a broken ankle in San Antonio , where he lives . He wanted me just to enjoy the build .

Classic!  Pricey.  Probably has the steel axel rods.

I picked up these kits today and haven't yet decided whether I'll keep them or get rid of them as I'm still "thinnin' the herd."

I saw the ZZ Top Eliminator kit at my local Hobby Lobby today, however I didn't buy it as I already have plenty of kits to build.

Mailman dropped this off today.

Open but appears complete. Has a little bit of warpage that I'll have to figure out how to remedy but all in all it looks good.

The  postal carrier must have finished reading the latest (Dec.) issue of Scale Auto and decided to deliver it to me today. Looks good as I like the show coverage and also the ERTL article.

So buy your wife a new car, and let her pick it out. She'll love it and you might like it also. My wife drove a Buick, a Chrysler 300, a Ford Edge, and decided on a loaded Ford Taurus. After 5 1/2 years with only 60,000 miles on it she still loves the car that she picked out.

 Actually, that's kind of the plan. Then I get her old truck.... that I bought for her in 2014.

And just paid it off last Jan.

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

   Soon to be on the bench...

Picked up this little display cabinet at Goodwill the other day for $7, I'll add a few more shelfs and changed it to plexi or glass to accomodate more models.
